Dekel Agri-Vision Plc ('Dekel' or the 'Company')

Director Shareholding and Issue of Equity

 

Dekel Agri-Vision Plc, the West African focused agriculture company, is pleased to announce that following the commencement of his employment contract on 16 March 2020, Aristide Achybrou, a non-executive director, elected to receive shares in Dekel rather than cash for all remuneration that became due for the period 16 March 2020 to 31 December 2020.  As a result, a total of 665,601 ordinary shares in the Company will be issued.  Following this, Aristide Achybrou will hold 21,965,601   ordinary shares in the Company, representing approximately 4.79% of the Company's enlarged total voting rights.  Aristide Achybrou has also elected to receive his entire remuneration in shares for the 2021 calendar year.

 

In addition, pursuant to their contracts, an employee of the Company and certain advisers are to be issued with a combined 656,029 ordinary shares in the Company for settlement of fees for services provided.

 

Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the admission of a total of 1,321,630 ordinary shares of €0.0003367   each (" Ordinary Shares ") to trading on AIM (" Admission ").  It is expected that Admission will become effective on or around 20 January 2021. Following Admission, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 458,447,705 Ordinary Shares.

 

DekelOil Executive Director Lincoln Moore said: "Requests from a director to receive shares in Dekel rather than cash in settlement of remuneration in our view represents an endorsement of the Company and its prospects.  We believe that, with palm oil prices trading above US1,000 per tonne, the peak harvest season in Cote d'Ivoire due to begin in the coming weeks and our high margin cashew processing project on course to commence operations in Q2 2021, this confidence is well-founded. With this in mind, we look forward to providing further updates on our progress."
